Ms Jacobson underwent therapy to help her come to terms with the sexual abuse she suffered at the hands of her babysitter and eventually built up the courage to tell her parents and brother what had happened.'I remember faking a stomach ache to try to keep my parents from going out when I knew my abuser was coming to babysit, but my silent cry was also the same tactic I used when another sitter was scheduled and I just wanted my parents to stay. I don't understand so many people putting their fear and discomfort ahead of the safety and innocence of children,' she said.
